Black History Month 2014

Black History Month

Black History Month has been celebrated widely for many years throughout October to honour the achievements, culture, and the history of Black people.

You can download the UNISON Black History Month poster and guide at www.unison.org.uk/catalogue/22614 and www.unison.org.uk/catalogue/22615.

UNISON is proud to support Black History Month. But our commitment to inclusion and equality lasts a lot longer than four weeks. Our branches and regions have self-organised black members groups, and the latest edition of our “Black Action” newsletter is at www.unison.org.uk/catalogue/22612

E-petition for Black history to be taught in schools

UNISON is supporting the campaign to get 100,000 signatures for the e-petition to make Black History part of the school curriculum for Primary education. It helps to enrich the development of the spiritual, moral, social and cultural needs of all ethnic groups. We believe that Black History should be made a mandatory element of the national curriculum. Why don’t you support the petition as well, and circulate it round your colleagues? Just go to 

http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/60635

If you need any further advice or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact Khadiee Campbell or Bukky Akinwale by email at blackmembers@unison.co.uk.
